A Reason to Celebrate :: Life

I'm the type of girl who regularly checks the calendar for any possible reason to celebrate. Chinese new year? I'd say it's definitely a day worthy of eating pork fried rice and broccoli beef. Columbus Day? Of course I'll throw a party for the man who didn'treallyevencomeclose to discovering our great nation. And Yom Kippur? Why yes, yes I think I will celebrate this Jewish day of atonement despite the fact that, uh, I'm not Jewish. So today, on Valentine's day, if you give me a reason to tape cut-out paper hearts on every mirror in the house and die the milk pink, you should know that I will definitely be showing up to the party. If you follow me on twitter you'll know that last night I went a little cra-azy with my shopping cart. In an attempt to maintain a single ounce of dignity I won't go into too much detail, but let's just say I left the local grocer with no less than one loaf of french bread, a box of fettuccine noodles, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, marscapone cheese, prosciutto, and a carton of whole milk - HolyHeavensILoveCheeseandCarbs.

Colton and I are getting ready to make a drool worthy dinner full of all the things we haven't been eating lately. But I couldn't let this day slip by without sending bundles of love via the blogosphere. I hope your day has been full of all of your favorite things {like chocolate and puppies and cut-out paper hearts!} and I hope you've hugged someone you love. If you haven't, now would be a perfect opportunity to do so.

Happy loving and lots of hugs being sent your way!
